Foundation Board and Staff

Eleven Trustees are responsible for creating and sustaining the Foundation's mission, approving long range plans and ensuring financial solvency, managing resources, ensuring adequate resources and monitoring programs and services for consistency with the Foundation’s vision and goals. Trustees establish prudent investment philosophies, policies and practices; approve and monitor the budget; and identify, cultivate and steward donors.

Eight Trustees are elected for four-year terms; two are appointed for two year terms; and the National President serves by virtue of her office. The four elected Trustees serve for a term of four years, thus maintaining a board of eight elected Trustees at all times. A Trustee may serve two (2) consecutive elected terms or any number of non-consecutive elected terms.
